A RUGBY league match was postponed at the weekend as a mark of respect to a player who is critically ill in hospital.
Thirty-year-old Dewsbury Celtic player Lee Massey is still fighting for his life in Leeds General Infirmary after being run down in Ravensthorpe almost a fortnight ago.
His condition was described today as "critical".
Team-mates, including Lee's brother, Dave, decided to call off the Tetley's Barla Yorkshire Cup match with Hull Embassy on Saturday because of Lee's condition.
His family and friends have maintained a bedside vigil at Leeds since the incident, in which two other men were stabbed.
Mr Massey, a father-of-one, was injured during a violent confrontation outside a Ravensthorpe pub involving a group of Iraqi men.
Thirteen men have been arrested by police, with 11 being bailed pending further inquiries. Two men were due to be interviewed today.
Police have mounted a massive investigation to find out information about the incident.
A public meeting with police was also held last week, in a bid to calm residents' fears.
Anyone with information about the incident outside the pub should ring 0845 6060606.
